Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

A pair of newly-hatched aviators compete in the 1948 "Chicken of Tomorrow" miniature airplane contest, with disastrous results.

Constructed entirely from footage in the archives. Soundtrack song On Silver Wings comes from the feaure film Danger Flight, as does the footage of the boy. Other sources: Chicken of Tomorrow, Chevrolet Leader News (Vol. 5, No. 2), and Sky Billboards.

There is a much smaller .mov file here.

(DISCLAIMER: No cute, fuzzy little chicks were harmed in the editing of this film.)

This is a brief film with very little in it, except a boy launching a toy plane with two newly hatched chicks in it. Naturally, the plane crashes. I was wondering why anyone would think this was funny, but then I saw the credits. If I told you what they were, I'd ruin the whole reason to download this film.

I realize the file size may be prohibitive for some of you, and that that alone will dissuade you from downloading any film that isn't five stars. I understand that. But this little video is pretty funny, and if you have nothing else to do, it might be worth your time.
